Little by little I am starting to play in the street photography field. Street photography is something that always attracted me but I had always been a little afraid of shooting people in the streets. But after reading some tips in some photography blogs , I decided to adventure myself a a little bit using my cellphone camera as a first step to exercise getting out of my comfort zone. I’ve been sharing some of those photos on my Instagram @mylittlerio
But last saturday, in Barra da Tijuca Beach I had my camera with me. And while my son played with my husband I decided to have my first official street photography shooting. As it was Carnival saturday, there were a lot of beach vendors selling all kind of stuff. Ice-cream, cookies, bikinis, “cangas” and everything you can imagine, and it just crossed my mind that they would be a great subject for my photos.
So, from under my sunshade I took the photos bellow. Although they are not as good as I wished, I felt happy for being able to do it!
